the nature of mystical experience
THE NATURE OF MYSTICAL EXPERIENCE

Sense of freedom in order to become the essence of moral process needs two auxiliary practices:

1. DISCIPLINE: In exploring his/her unconscious, the novice (murid) must be under the watchful control of one more experienced than him/her-self

2. CONCEPTUAL ANALYSIS: In speaking intelligibly about murid’s fears or blockings or dreams

the sense of oneself and the universe
THE SENSE OF ONESELF AND THE UNIVERSE
  • The limits of conceptual discourse in making sense of ultimate cosmic and moral insights must be compensated through symbolic images
  • Symbolic Images evoke emergent associations, rather than fix propositions
  • Mythopoeic Forms outline truths after the manner of myths: multivalent, every hearer can grasp as his/her own level of understanding
the myth of microcosmic return
THE MYTH OF MICROCOSMIC RETURN
  • HUMAN BEING = “microcosm,” “world in miniature”
  • Human = fullest fruition of all the elements of “macrocosm”, the Universe
  • Rational Universe implied “purposiveness” in all its parts and in its totality
  • The Purpose = Human Being
the myth of microcosmic return5
THE MYTH OF MICROCOSMIC RETURN
  • The Cosmos is fulfilled through an individual’s self-fulfillment
  • Self-fulfillment seen as a return, on a new level, to cosmic origins
  • The Myth explains how the soul comes to find itself longing always beyond its present reach
  • Becoming conscious of the origin = of God
  • Becoming mirrors of God
